Halloween Treat Box



Check this out! I love making this box! It is as easy as she said :) I purchased the template from Lauren Meader at, I usually don't purchase these but for $5 I thought it was worth it and it is, saved me a lot of time! I also purchased her other new one which I will post that creation later this week.

I wish I was more creative, I just know this could be a lot cuter with some additions to it but this is as far as I could take it. This is Tangerine Tango cardstock, it works great for Halloween with eggplant and green galore but it is last year's incolor from SU. I just like how much brighter it is than the pumpkin paper. I did cut out the front so it is open to inside, then framed the cutout with the black frame and put the fence punched from the MS punch on that. I got this idea in my head to use this ghost paper on the inside to make my house look haunted :) The second picture is taken from the side to show my cute little spider I stamped on the lid. I don't have any other Halloween type stamps like bats or other spiders or ghosts etc. Just word stamps really and a couple of pumpkin and leaves type ones. I don't really get into Halloween I just like these cute things everyone has been creating! I used my son's bat punch for the bat on the lid, I had a nice ghost charm that I found digging through my old scrapbooking stuff :) You can put candy bars or a bag of candy treats or something inside and then when they remove it they will see the "ghosts" :) Anyway I am going to make more box houses soon but I have the other template to show you plus an accordion holder (template is free from scor-pal) I made for Halloween so check back later!

Such a cute treat box! It really looks complicated, so it's good to know Lauren's templates are easy to follow!!

This is too cute. I love the ghost peeking out the window, very clever. I have a few of the templates, but not this one. I think you just made me "need" it. Great project.
